The Devils as a franchise are at a crossroads here. They will not have a 1st round pick in 2014. I really wish they had won the Cup last year because then they could have totally dismantled and rebuilt again. Aside from Boucher we are really lacking at quality winger prospects. And I am not sold on our goalie prospects either. Only Lou knows how serious Kovy is injured. If Kovy's injury is really bad and the season seems lost or the playoffs a longshot he should go about unloading a lot of our pending unrestricted free agents over the next couple of days to get several future draft picks.
Clarkson-trade to Montreal or Toronto (we could see him in a Leaf uniform on Sat.)
Tallinder-trade to a team needing veteran defensive help
I trust Lou and I know he sees that this team is not doing good. We have 2 regulation wins in the last month. Lou knows this team should not be playing like this. We do have a good team, but now he has to realize they are not playing well. We need more PP guys on this team. I hope everyone agrees with me, but Clarkson and Berny should not be playing on the PP. Berny is a good net presence, which makes him more of a PP guy than Clarkson. Clarkson, is in another world and if the Devils can make a move for a big name I would do it. This team needs another Parise like player. We are really missing Parise bad and if we can get a player like him we will be fine.
